Hi Tony,I see that the same organisation "Star Listings International" have already given the same name, "Alba", to three different stars:On 2008 Nov 09, GSC 1076 2358 located at RA 20:09:31.20, Dec +10:17:24.0On 2009 Aug 20, PPM 101969 located at RA 12:31:51.93, Dec +23:16:11.0On 2012 Oct 05, PPM 150158 located at RA 06:15:12.76, Dec +06:53:36.2There does not seem to be any objection to giving lots of stars the same name in their Registry! They just have an extra entry which is the name of the person for whom the star has been so-called ‘named’ to justify it being unique.This is a real money spinner for someone. If you search their Registry at:http://starlistings.co.uk/shop/star-registry.phpthere seem to be thousands upon thousands of stars with the text "star" in their name.Richard
